V8 Swapped TR8: 1980 Triumph TR7

The Triumph TR7 is one of those almost forgotten classics that was launched in 1974 as the “Shape of things to Come” as British Leyland headed to bankruptcy. TR7 styling was penned by Harris Mann (known for his Austin Allegro and Princess work) and while it won’t win any beauty contests, it certainly checks all the boxes if you want something that is strangely appealing and today’s is covered in a nice shade of LSU approved purple.
